Masters Thesis from the year 2017 in the subject Business economics - Company formation, Business Plans, grade: 2,0, Andrássy Gyula Deutschsprachige Universität Budapest, language: English, abstract: As more and more startup companies are founded every year worldwide, building up ones own business does not get easier. Since 9 out of 10 startups fail, future entrepreneurs are well advised to take a look at potential reasons for failure and success. Learning from others mistakes and studying success stories can improve their own performance and help to avoid critical errors. The academic paper at hand will provide valuable insights for entrepreneurs. After delivering an overview of the most commonly used terms and definitions in the startup scene, chapter 6 will describe the components of a business idea and how experts can assess a companys value. Subsequently, the most important factors for a startup companys success, according to literature review, will be listed and illustrated. Various standpoints of academic research and studies will be discussed. Delineating both internal and external factors, this thesis not only delivers a synoptic view of potential challenges inside a startup as well as in its ecosystem, but also juxtaposes these influences in opposition. The second part of this paper analyzes a series of interviews with twelve startup founders from three different regions (the province of North-Rhine Westphalia in Germany, Budapest in Hungary and the state of California in the US). Their views and experiences will be summarized and put into the context of their respective startup ecosystem. This way, the study is able to provide an understanding of the distinctive attributes of these ecosystems. Furthermore, the interviewees challenges and advices will be compared to previously reviewed literature. Therefore, the reader is able to gain insights from an academic perspective, as well as from real-life examples.

Research Paper (undergraduate) from the year 2016 in the subject Business economics - Company formation, Business Plans, grade: 1,7, University of Applied Sciences Rosenheim (Wirtschaft), course: Betriebswirtschaftliches Seminar, language: English, abstract: To have a great idea for a Start-up is a very good predisposition for a successful business. Despite this amazing thought, unfortunately a lot of Start-ups fail at the beginning. According to the statistics 34% of entrepreneurs are 20-29 years old and 40% are between 30-39 years old once they start their first business. Most of the people in this age are already well-educated and they do not have many savings. It makes them look for alternatives, which could support the first critical years of their Start-up. At the beginning no one wants to invest in an unknown business, which leaves them with the idea of borrowing money elsewhere. As a matter of fact, no one wants to take a disadvantageous loan, so young entrepreneurs usually ask their family and friends for help, but by taking this kind of money, they are putting the good friendships and relationships at stake. So what are the options? Where can a fresh entrepreneur start looking for help and financial support? The answer should be clearer after reading this paper. The goal we are trying to reach, is to give a better overview of the options of financing, the advantages and disadvantages of different methods and show it on real life examples. One of the most important thing is to be well informed about the possibilities which are available, so it may come to the realization of the original idea and building of a successful Start-up. In order to give a better insight on this topic, we will also choose existing Start-ups and analyse what methods they have used, how they were implemented and what they had to give in return. We will pick not only from the successful ones, but also from the less fortunate businesses as its important to understand the know-how of winners just as important as to know the mistakes of others.

THE SAN FRANCISCO FALLACY IS NOT ABOUT SAN FRANCISCO. Rather, its about the herd instincts that drive tech companies to set up shop there, and the mistakes these herd instincts lead to. Most importantly, its about how to avoid making these same mistakes yourself. In The San Francisco Fallacy, serial entrepreneur and venture capitalist Jonathan Siegel looks at the 10 biggest fallacies that run through startup culture. Over his many years launching companies, hes fallen victim to what he now recognizes as a series of common errors, misconceptions that bedevil startups to this day. But he also learned how to sidestep and surmount many of these challenges. After multiple eight-figure exits and other startup successes, Jonathan began to see the deeper fallacies in which his failures took root. His biggest career successes, on the other hand, seemed to come when he and his teams went against the tide and did everything wrong. This book is an examination of the popular belief system about startups. At its heart is a series of challenges to years of accumulated startup orthodoxy. What emerges is not just a critique but an inspiring call-to anyone trying to build a successful business-for a broader kind of critical thinking.
